We are again overwhelmed by the nominations received for the November 2020 Volunteer of the Month Award. As a sport we are blessed to have such amazing volunteers in all our clubs who give so freely of their time and energy and we’d like to thank all the volunteers in our clubs and on all our committee’s for their tireless work.
Development Director Fiona Walshe commended all the nominations received acknowledging “that the strength of our sport lies in the hands of so many wonderful volunteers and the LHA Board & Development Committee are grateful to each and every one of you”.
The nominations received recognised volunteers in all areas of our sport – coaches, umpires, administrators, Children’s Officers, Covid Officers, committee members.
The Development Committee reviewed all the nominations received in and are delighted to announce that Siobhán Madeley will receive the November 2020 Volunteer of the Month Award. A member of Three Rock Rovers HC for many years, Siobhán started a ParaHockey programme in the club less than five years ago. The ParaHockey programme is now a growing and much loved section within Three Rock Rovers and Siobhán has assisted a number of other clubs in Leinster to start and grow their own ParaHockey Sections.
Luke McSharry (Three Rock Rovers Secretary) added “the introduction of ParaHockey to the club has undoubtedly had a positive impact on the players and coaches involved with the Rockets, but has also gone on to have such a positive effect on the wider club”.
In announcing the award Fiona Walshe also thanked Siobhán “for her work introducing ParaHockey to the Leinster Hockey family and we look forward to seeing numbers grow” and she wished the Irish ParaHockey squad the best of luck in the Europeans in July 2021.
Leinster Hockey Chairman, Trevor Watkins congratulated Siobhán saying “it was well deserved recognition for her work and foresight to get ParaHockey started in Ireland” and he expressed his delight in seeing this format of the game grow in Leinster.
